PHP extension installation on Windows

P: n/a
Hi, there. If you were to install a PHP extension on Windows, in what form
would you want the installation to be? Would you want a graphical installer
such as InstallShield or MS Windows Installer? Or would regular copying
into ext directory and doing automake stuff do (make install, etc.) suffice
or in fact be more fitting?

Thanks!

DLL in a zip file with instructions and some sample files has been fine for me
for the 3rd-party extensions I've used. I'd be a bit wary of an installer
trying to do something "clever" with my setup.

i agree... with Installers, we're never quite sure EXACTLY what's being
installed (spyware, registry entries, etc etc)....
